This competition has expired on
The call for applications is now open!
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: The Design of Dissent, one of the most prominent books about socially and politically driven graphics, is about to get an expanded edition and once again invites all designers to submit they best published works for the new edition of the new Graphic Design Contest for 2017.
Graphic Design Contest recently launched by Milton Glaser and Mirko Ilic, the authors of the most prominent and aforementioned books about socially and politically driven graphics titled The Design of Dissent, about to get an expanded edition invites all designers to submit they best published works.
You are invited to help observe and record what has happened in our time.
Eligible for submission are published works only. Student and personal work will not be considered.
You are required to send JPGs or TIFFs of the works at 10 inches on longest side of image at 300dpi.
Published contributors will be credited on the pages where their work appears, and they will appear in an artist directory.Contributors will also have the opportunity to purchase copies of the book at a 50% discount.
The hosts are also looking to organize a traveling exhibition of the original prints to both promote the book, work and designers that are featured in the book.
In 2005, when “The Design of Dissent” was first published, the authors could not anticipate the era of conflict and disorder the world would face in the next decade.
Artists usually are the alarm system for society. Milton Glaser and Mirko Ilic share the need to express danger when totalitarianism becomes more powerful. The Graphic Arts community uses the most primitive of means; posters, handouts, buttons, and graffiti linked to provocative ideas to protect us all.
Acceptance begins immediately. Early submissions are highly encouraged.
There is no entry fees for this competition!
It's free to enter!
